New! 2-week Academic English program will be offered beginning January 16, 2014, and will replace the 2-week Conversation Plus program.
Who should take this course?
This program focuses on conversation, fluency-building, and American culture topics. Students will have structured lessons in grammar and vocabulary development. Practical interative classroom lessons are combined with two cultural field trips. Presenations made by guest speakers are also integrated into the curriculum. For a less intensive conversation program, try our Conversation Program. All levels of English proficiency may take this program. Student's English proficiency is determined during orientation at the time the student arrives to UC San Diego English Language Institute (ELI).
